What the Nation is saying about the 2012 Rebel Stakes (G2)...

Sabercats next race will be all telling and he will do well. Still my pick for the Derby. Anyone know why My Adonis is still ranked above Sabercat. I totally pitched him in saturdays race. He was beat soundly, again! Back to ranking wasn't My Adonis and Drill slaughtered by Sabercat back in Nov. in the Delta Downs Jackpot Race! Ah, maybe I'm wrong.

  • ruffian751 · @tim - I'm sorry, but if we don't put the copyright notice, those images will get screen-grabbed and used all over the place. It is unfortunate we have to do it, especially for the fans. But, there are actually website that make money, even farms, who have lifted images they had more than enough money to pay for. Again, I wish the situation were otherwise. Hope you still enjoy the images. · 747 days ago ·

  • Cardly Knot · If Secret Circle runs back to the form of his SouthWest win, he'll be hard to catch. Like many, I have doubts getting more than 9f. Sabercat going into a tough race from a lengthy layoff. Union Rags the only one w/ a first from layoff. · 765 days ago ·
  • Cardly Knot · Add Gemologist to the win off a layoff. Very nice effort. · 765 days ago ·
I think union rags is deserving of being the favorite in this years derby. Although my pick is Sabercat. There are alot of reasons why I think these two finish 1st and 2nd in this years kentucky derby. Mostly because they close off the pace well. Union Rags showed that he wasnt working hard in the last race and won going away. My pick though is Sabercat to win. Many bad things happened in the Delta Downs Jackpot Race and he won drawing away. He got slammed at the start. Then was last. The fractions were blistering for the 1/4 and 1/2. And he checked up 3 times in the race but was still able to get going again and won easily. I know the final time of 146 and change wasnt great but taking into account that all the things bad in the race that happened it was outstanding. How many other contenders for the derby could have overcome that. Plus finally he gets a great jockey for the rebel this weekend. Corey Nakatani. Alot of people think Im nuts picking him, but they are the same ones that told me that Animal Kingdom would not win last years derby. He was my pick a month before the derby ran. Go Sabercat!
